All our products are made right here in the USA, in a little studio north of Chicago.
Our crystals are sourced from all over the world, and no two beads are alike. We typically use 8mm for mala bead necklaces and 6mm for bracelets.
We made a decision early on not to hand knot our jewelry malas because we wanted them to stand the test of time. Typically, hand knotted silk cord malas will last only 9-12 months. Instead we use 49-strand steel. My favorite mala finally needed restringing after about 1800 wearings.
Andrea: My favorite is the Serenity Mala, which I created for a friend's sister to combat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and depression. Yellow, peach and purple are not colors I normally wear, but it called to me and continues to do so every day.
Treat it with love and kindness, and it'll love you right back. For a full list of helpful tips, please see our blog post, Caring for Your Mala.
Your mala and some bracelets are made to order and can take up to a week to ship, depending on backlog. If you need it fast, please add a comment when ordering.
Once your order is shipped you'll receive an email with an online tracking number.
Shipping & Returns
In the US, your order ships for a flat rate of $3.50, or $7.00 for priority shipping.
Yes, we ship to a number of countries all around the world. The cost varies according to the destination, but you'll only pay our actual cost to ship.
Once it's shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number. The pandemic, along with changes to the USPS in 2020, have slowed down mail considerably though. Most orders are still delivered within a week. Let us know if you need express shipping, and we'll get you a price quote.
We gladly offer returns and exchanges of unworn items within 30 days of your receipt. Our full return and exchange policy can be found here.
No it's not mandatory, but it's highly recommended. You can find your order history, edit your addresses and track your package online faster. You will also be notified of new products and special events.
